Why Make A Stock Gift?

Most people are surprised to learn just how simple it is to donate appreciated securities. If you hold stocks, bonds or mutual funds that have risen in value, and you have held them long term (more than one year and one day), you can consider using them to make a gift.

Why might a stock gift be right for you? First, a donation of appreciated securities qualifies you for a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the security on the gift date. This amount may be generally deductible up to 30% of your adjusted gross income (always consult your tax advisor about your specific situation). When you transfer the securities directly to us, you won’t incur capital gains tax. This allows you to gain a greater tax benefit and make a larger contribution than if you simply sold the securities yourself and donated the cash from the sale.

Consistent with regulations covering stock gifts, we receive the stocks, then sell them and use the proceeds to fund our work. It’s that simple. There is no minimum donation for an outright gift of stock.

Just follow the simple directions below:
